New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it is different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 5.9


The remote Debian host is missing a security update.


Tyler Bohan of Talos discovered that FreeRDP, a free implementation of the Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP), contained several vulnerabilities that allowed a malicious remote server or a man-in-the-middle to either cause a DoS by forcibly terminating the client, or execute arbitrary code on the client side.

For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 1.0.1-1.1+deb7u4.

We recommend that you upgrade your freerdp packages.

NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.


Upgrade the affected packages.
